Re-purposed Shelf

I found this wonderful shelf at Deseret Industries the other day.  I saw it and could not figure out what somebody would have used it for!  If you look closely, there are 24 grooves on each side of each of the four sections, for a total of 96 little shelves that are 4 1/2 inches long and 1 1/2 inches wide.  I should have taken a picture of it BEFORE we removed all of the little shelves.  I didn't want to put them all back in just to take a picture so you will just have to visualize it!  Can any of you think what this might have been used for with such tiny shelves....and so many of them?

After removing all the shelves my husband drilled three holes in eight of the shelves for my Stickles, sprayed everything white, I only put a few of the shelves back in, and PRESTO!  Instant craft shelf!  I love how it turned out and it is very handy!  I have a grundle of shelves left so if I run out of places for my Stickles, we can always drill more holes and add them to the mix!  As always, thanks for stopping by and have a wonderful day!


  1. Shirley I saw that VERY shelf the other day. I picked it up, thought this would be great for something, then set it back down again. leave it to your creativity to come up with such a beautiful and useful shelf!!!!

    1. Thanks Keri! When I picked it up, I had no idea what I was going to do with it, but just knew I had to have it!
